The full day tour of Argolis is a trip to some of the most important archaeological sites of Greece, in the most characteristic Greek-Mediterranean scenery of Peloponnese.

The first stage of our tour is allocated with the visit in Mycenae. In the north-east of the city of Argos lies the site of Mycenae (3000 B.C.).  The monumental Lion Gate and the Treasury of Atreus, also known as the Tomb of Agamemnon, are considered to be the finest examples of Mycenaean architecture.35 km away is the magnificent open – air theatre of Epidaurus, designed by Polycleitos the Younger in the 3rd century B.C. It can seat 12300 spectators and the acoustics are exceptional.  Every summer performances of ancient drama take place in this theatre. Our agency organizes also tours for all the performances to Ancient theater of Epidaurus during the summer.

Our next visit is Nafplion,which is one of Greece’s prettiest and most romantic towns. It occupies a knockout waterside location beneath the towering Palamidi fortress, and is graced with attractive narrow streets, elegant Venetian houses, neoclassical mansions and interesting museums. It is also chock-full of tavernas, posh boutiques and comfortable hotels and guesthouses.
